Would it be controversial to say to just buy a shed-load? Zyrtec and equivalents are cheap as chips and very available - amazon have bull packs that can be delivered next day.

Easier option?
That’s my just in case at least enough to last a few years, if the OH can not mess up my system again lol. But like cbp125 it does get grating to have to be slightly drugged up all the time. It will be my fall back option but if I can retrain my body or just use something natural I could grow or forage then saves a few quid and prepares for the longer term if drug manufacturers are truly gone.

I see the note on a neti pot as well in the other comments, tried it, found it awkward and didn’t seem to do it for me.

My mrs suffers very badly with hayfever, I get it too, but only from the tree pollen so it doesn't last that long.

She has a spoonful of local honey every morning, that means she only has to take 1 antihistamine rather than multiple ones, can't be 100% sure it does anything as we haven't done a double blind test or anything, but she says it helps.
I will have to try using some local honey once we are free to leave the hose once more, never been a fan of taken tablets at the best of times.

Unfortunately I forgot to restock my hay fever tablets from last summer so suffering at the moment but thankfully amazon have some, one more thing to add to the list I need to keep in stock
